The Director

"If you ask me what I came into the world to do, I will tell you I came to live out loud." – Emile Zola

Constance A. Goodwin, Ed.D. founded Goodwin Associates and Leadership as a Performing Art® in 2001 with the intent of developing business artists, one conversation at a time. She generates conversations with Senior Executives and their teams in some of America's leading corporations and emerging growth businesses.

Leadership as a Performing Art® is design methodology that builds an executive leadership platform for success in ever changing business environments. The focus is on expanding and exceeding organizational goals and strategies through accelerating an executive's growth and power as an Executive Performing Artist®. Dr. Goodwin works with individual executives to uncover personal purpose and integrate this into their "whole" lives; she works with their teams to leverage their leadership experience inside executive development, cultural/leadership transitions, senior executive coaching, and bringing creativity into their interactive worlds.

Prior to founding Goodwin Associates, she served as a Vice President for Business Development in a startup consulting practice and as a project consultant in an international consulting firm. Her consulting included: large-scale Executive/Team Alignment projects, ERP implementation projects, e-business initiatives, as well as customer service transformation projects.

She has served on the faculty of Temple University, The University of the Arts and Villanova University in the Graduate Program for Human Resource Development. She was accountable for the design, development, and delivery of courses that focused on shifting paradigms in society, art, and culture, as well as performance technique, writing, and community outreach programs for arts education.

Supporting her commitment to performance and education were professional lives as a Three-Day equestrian athlete and trainer, as well as a Modern Dance artist in New York and Philadelphia and an avid international sailor. In addition, Dr. Goodwin has served on the Board of Hospice of Martha's Vineyard, as well as working with community organizations for local business development.

Dr. Goodwin holds a B.F.A. from Philadelphia College of Performing Arts, M.Ed. from Temple University, and an Ed.D. from Temple University.

When not working, she can be found living outside Ocala with her husband, Richard Cascarino, riding and training her upper-level dressage horse Skygate Hit with Eline Eckroth, Lee Tubman, and Ilse Schwarz, cooking, and interior re-designing.
